We arrived here via another B&B that was booked out. Tracy, who booked us in, could not have been any more helpful. She even got another staff member to carry our (heavy) bag which was totally unexpected. Her friendliness and sense of humor as really nice to experience.
The room we had was 26 which was on the top floor. Quite small but completely acceptable with a decent sized bathroom and a large window.
Wifi was free which is excellent and other major chains need to take note of.
The bar and food was very good. I had the beef and ale pie which was tasty and tender although somewhat worrying wasn't in a bowl or pastry case. No matter, the taste made up for it. My wife got through a chicken dish which was a special and reports it was pretty darn good.
Breakfast next morning was most pleasant; in a room with huge windows, sun streaming in and plenty of great views. Very attentive young girl was a pleasure in the morning and was a great ambassador for the hotel.
I have to say all the girls serving were fantastic and really made our stay enjoyable.
The only down side was that the bed was actually 2 singles joined together with the resulting seam down the middle and it was somewhat lumpy. The curtains were not wide enough to cover the hole window and as it is a pub, we had spotlights on the building all night. Fix these two issues and I give it 5 dots.
